Hello! My name is Connor and I am a professional drummer, percussionist, composer, and educator living in Brooklyn, NY. I have a BA in Jazz Studies from the New School for Performing Arts in New York City.
I play many styles of music all over the US and internationally, ranging from Jazz, Rock, Folk, Hip Hop, Bluegrass, electronic, and contemporary classical music! I can relate my knowledge of playing all of these styles to you, and we can dive in to any area of drumming & music that you'd like!
With most of my students, we cover technique and fundamentals (rudiments, warm ups, building stamina), learning different grooves and styles on the drums, and then get into an area of the students personal interest, like learning songs, improvisation, soloing, etc.
I am very patient and flexible, and work with each student to serve their unique needs, and of course, we have a ton of fun! No matter what your experience level is, I guarantee that you will be learning and growing every week as we build your relationship with the drums.
I taught through Jazz at Lincoln Center's Jazz For Young People program, where we went to NYC public schools to perform and talk about the history of Jazz Music.
I taught students age 12-18 mallet percussion, auxillary percussion, and drum set fundamentals for one year in Orlando, FL (my hometown!)
Connor is a Canopus Drums Artist.
